Mtstot^ of the Cbambets Church 

BOUT a luindrecl years ago a veiieralile Scotc-li-Irisli lady emi- 

A grated from Slewartstown, Tyrone, Ireland. On the voyage a 
severe storm arose. It continued of such violence tliat the hope 
of seeing land again was almost abandoned. Her anxiety and 
fear for the crew and vessel were such that in her distress she 
sought the Lord for liis i:)rotection. She persuaded the master 
of the vessel to call the passengers and crew into the main cabin. 
Then in their presence and hearing, on her knees, she pleaded 
with her God and lather that they might be brought to their 
desired haven. At the same time siie recorded a vow that she 
would build a church for His worship and to His glory. Her 
prayer was answered. The tempest abated, and the ship much 
battered reached the Delaware, and the old lady was landed in 
Philadelphia, where she resided for some years, till her death. 
When her will was read it was found she had left a sum of money to fulfill the 
promise she had made, which she had been unable to do in her lifetime. 

It was in that way that a Presbyterian C'hurch was erected on the west 
side of Thirteenth Street, north of Market Street, Pliiladelphia. It was a 
small, himible building, and it was before a congregation mainly composed of 
woi'kingmen and women, with only a very few of their number who then were 
regarded as well-to-do, that John Chambers, its first pastor, appeared on the 9th 
day of May, 1825, after having preached trial sermon in Milton, Pa. He 
iiad been born in the Stewartstown already mentioned, about twenty-seven years 
before. The name of the donor of the funds for the church building was Mr.<. 
jMargaret Duncan. She was the grandmother of the Kev. John ifason Duncan. 
;i minister of the Gospel in Baltimore. He was regarded by Mr. Chambers as 
his father in the Lord, and as the one from whom he had received all his eduea- 
iion, and best and above all his training for tlie gospel ministry. 

John Chambers was then young and untried. Although for two or three 
years before leaving Baltimore he had been much interested in religion, and 
with five or six other young men — students of Mr. Duncan — had organized some 
meetings in that city, he had not really proved his armor. A sense of loneli- 
ness and responsibility ojipressed him. The friendshi]is of his boyhood and 
youth were behind him. He Avas among a strange people. Yet he determined 
he would win their love and confidence; that he would walk before them as an 
ambassador of Christ; that every talent he possessed, his youthful vigor, bis 
heart and soul, his evej'v word and action would be ottered to Jesus, that i)y 
His Spirit they might be blessed in the work he Avas called to do. 

He found that there were no congregational prayer meetings, and no Sab- 
bath School in connection with ihe church. Saddest of all, the family altar 
was almost unknown among its members. The lack of these things intensified 

the young minister's sympathy and love for his people. A new zeal possessed 
him. The fire which burned in his own soul lit other fires. The young people 
became his ready workers. 'J'hey blazed the way for him. They became, and 
always were, his pioneers in every good word and work. Places for prayer 
away from the church building were sought out. A room on Market Street, 
near Seventeenth, was secured. At the first meeting in it, held early 
in June, 1825, a crowd of people from Callowhill and Front Streets, and from 
■ near to the Navy Yard, and from other directions far and near, were gathered. 
Conversions followed. The attendances in the church Avere enlarged. At the 
first communion iii August, 1825, presided over by the Eev. Dr. Ely, of Old 
Pine Street Church (Mr. Cliambers not having then been ordained), forty per- 
sons were received into the membership. 

John Chambers had the faculty of drawing forth the latent energies of his 
members in Christian work, and that in an especial manner in young men and 
women. When the Market Street prayer meeting was begun, he got the assist- 
ance of outsiders in its conduct. Very soon no such assistance was required. 
In less than five weeks, four volunteers assured him of their Avillingness to speak 
for Christ, and to lead in prayer. Very soon the intense activity, particularly 
of the young men, was most noticeable. Guided by Matthew Arrison and 
Thomas Hibbert, two of the elders, and the pastor's very devoted helpers, prayer 
meetings were held up-town and down-town, and in the private dwellings, which 
were then in the partially occupied lots west of Broad Street. Subsequently 
Cedar Street Presbyterian Church grew out of one of these prayer meetings, 
which was held in an old barn, and a I^utheran Church and a Baptist Church 
had their origin in another of these prayer meetings in Girard School House. 

As there were no propei' accommodations at Thirteenth and Market Streets 
for a Sabbath School, rooms were rented at the corner of Thirteenth and T^ocust 
Streets. The congregation entered upon their work Avith the greatest good-will. 
A corps of devoted teachers Avas appointed, and the little ones, the children of 
the church, as well as other children, were gathered in. They attended not 
only the school, but setting an example which the children of families in our 
churches would now do well to folloAN', they also attended the church services. 
When the school exercises were over, teachers and scholars, in a body, marched 
along Thirteenth Street and entered the church. In that way adults on the 
street were attracted, and moved by curiosity joined the procession, and heard 
the gospel preached, and in many instances were converted. 

At that time the quiet of God's house was not allowed to be disturbed. 
No vehicle of any kind could pass along the street, for a, chain, from sidewalk 
to sidewalk, was stretched, and the marble pillar on the east side, to which the 
chain was attached, is there to this day. 

The Sabbath day was regarded by the young people as a '' field day." At 
six in the morning there was a prayer meeting; at nine, the Sabbath School; 
at ten-thirty, the forenoon church services: at one, a rehearsal of sacred hymns; 
at two, another session of the Sabbath School; at three-thirty, the afternoon 
church services, and at seven-thirty, a prayer and conference meeting. 

It was not, however, until the month of December, 1825, that John Cham- 


bers was ordained by an Association in ISTew Haven, Conn., and it was not till 
the first Sabbath in January, 1826, that he administered the Lord's Supper for 
the first time. On that day, for the first time, he baptized a child, who was 
named John Chambers Arrison, who is still living. Is it any wonder that be- 
tween seventy and eighty -were added to the church ? Is it any wonder that 
the church membership increased in so remarkable a manner ? God blesses the 
efforts of believers in bringing sinners into the kingdom. The little congrega- 
tion had its watchmen all over the city — the beacon fires were kept bright. The 
day of the institution of the prayer meeting and the Sabbath School were re- 
garded by John Chambers as God's set time when he began to favor the little 
Zion with His presence and power. 

That communion, in January, 1826, v/as long remembered. At the end 
of fifty years the retrospect was very vivid and very sweet to John Chambers. 
He said, " We had everything to cheer, and everything to comfort. It seemed 
to me that the tide of God's favor was taken at the flood, and it has brought us 
on to where we are to-day." 

In a few years, in 1830, owing to the rapid growth in numbers of the mem- 
bership, it became impossible for the little building to contain them. Without 
a single note of dissent, it was resolved to secure ground and erect a suitable 
house of worship at the northeast corner of Broad and Sansom Streets, where 
now stands the ISTorth American Building. Broad Street was then almost the 
western boundary of the city. The congregation since 1826 and till was 

the First Independent Presbyterian Church of Philadelphia. The members 
and adherents — young and old, male and female — joined in this movement with 
the greatest zeal. They resolved that without any external aid, without a fair, 
or a concert, or a festival (there were none of these distractions allowed in the 
church during the pastorate of Mr. Chambers), the work would be done. How 
glad they were when the corner-stone was laid. It was an occasion of gTeat 
public interest, the building of so large and well-appointed a church on this, 
the then western confine of the town. The dedication followed. It was a great 
day and the beginning of great things. Mr. Chambers's steadfast friend, the 
Rev. John Mason Duncan, of Baltimore, preached the sermon of dedication. 

The new church in its architecture was after the Greek style. It was of 
fair yet noble joroportions. It had a lecture or school room, and rooms for 
meetings of sessions and trustees, library room, and infant room in the base- 
ment, to which entrance was had from Sansom Street. Above was the main 
auditorium, which was entered from Broad Street by an ascent of several steps 
which extended across abovit one-third of tlie Avidth of the building. The pul- 
pit and platform were at the east end of the auditorium. Extending from that 
end westwards, the two sides of the church, and across it at the west end, where 
was the organ, were very spacioiis galleries. The seats of the main floor and 
galleries were well arranged and comfortable. The acoustic properties were 
excellent. Altogether, it was a beautiful, well-proportioned building on which 
no money was wasted, either in its construction or decoration, although it wa^ 
neither devoid of ornament nor of taste. It was a spontaneoiis offering to God 
by a people who were industrious, who were not wealthy, but who could and did 

deny themselves many things, so that they might worship in God's house with- 
out a fienny of debt standing against it. They did so, not for themselves 
alone, but for the sake of the hundreds who would come to hear their beloved 
pastor, and whose fame not only as a preacher, but also as an organizer of re- 
ligious work among his members, had become widely known. 

The glory of the latter liouse far exceeded the glory of the former. It was 
said by one, forty-five years afterA\-ard, whose then young and unregenerate 
heart was broken and healed: '"' How awfully solemn has this place been at 
times! What seasons of revival! What multitudes have here been brought 
to repentance towards God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ ! " ISTo extra or 
special meetings were ever held, but the regular services were almost altogether 
the occasions of the manifestation of converting power. It was pray and work, 
and work and pray, all the time. The Lord's Supper was administered quar- 
terly. During Mr. Cbamliers's pastorate there was only one communion on 
which additions were not made. At all the others the admissions ranged from 
seven up to one hundred and twenty, and altogether he received into the church 
over thirty-six hundred. 

The erection of the new building did not abate for an instant the activitj- 
of John Chambers or bis people. They had other worlds to conquer. They 
bad other trophies to win. The ravages of intemperance had to be stayed. The 
cause of temperance was not then regarded by tlie churches, or by ministers 
generally, -as one which they ought to avo^v or support. Its advocacy was 
scarcely tolerated, far less looked upon with favor. John C^hambers espoused 
ir with all his heart. On its behalf he would speak nightly for weeks. '' From 
old Southwark to old Kensington, from the Delaware to the Schuylkill, his 
voice like a trumpet was heard denouncing the traffic in liquor." The " First 
Youths' Temperance Society in PJiiUidelphia " was organized by the young men 
of his church in Feliruary, 1S40, and its anniversary on the 22d day of that 
month (Washington's Birthday) M-as observed annually so long as the churcli 
at Broad and Sansom remained. 



Mtstov^ of M^lte Cburcb 

HE Wylie Cluircli was originally orgauizprl as the First Reformed 

T Presbyterian Church on January 28th, 1798, in a room twelve 
feet square, in the second story of the house of Thomas Thomp- 
son, at Penn and South Streets, Philadelphia. The organiza- 
tion was effected, and Stephen Young and Thomas Thompson or- 
dained as its ruling elders. 

In 1802 a house of worship was erected on Mary Street 
(now Carver), between Sixth and Seventh Streets, and in 1803 
Rev. Samuel Brown Wylie was installed pastor of the newly- 
organized church. 

The first sacrament of the Lord's Supper was dispensed by 
the pastor, assisted by the Rev. Dr. McLeod, of iSFew York, and 
there were thirty-five persons who partook of the communion. 

Dr. Samuel Brown Wylie was a native of Ireland, and came 
to this country in 1797, having given offence to his Government 
because of his connection Avith the United Irishmen. He was ordained to the 
ministi-y at Ryegate, Vermont, in 1804, this being the first Covenanter ordina- 
tion in America. 

For a time he accepted a call to the congregations in Philadelphia and Bal- 
timore jointly, and was their joint pastor. The latter pastorate he resigned 
after a few years. To the duties of a pastor he added those of a successful 
schoolmaster, but in 1828 he gave up his school and occupied the chair of Greek 
and Latin Languages in the University of Pennsylvania, which he retained 
until 1845, when he became Professor Emeritus. He was also Vice-Provost of 
the University of Pennsylvania from 1834 imtil the same year. 

The congregation having increased in numbers, erected a new building 
on Eleventh Street, below Market, then known as Marble Alley, and removed 
to that place in 1818. 

In 1824 a Sabbath School was established. Mr. Thomas McAdam, the 
lifelong friend of Dr. Wylie, was its first superintendent. The school grew and 
flourished, reaching its largest membership during Mr. George H. Stewart's 
able superintendence, having a membership of over five hundred. 

On December 6th, 1857, the St. Mary Street Colored Mission was founded 
by Mr. William D. Stewart, the oldest son of George H. Stewart, and the 
mission has since been carried on under the care of the Wylie Church. It is 
now under the control of the combined Chambers-Wylie Church, there having 
been recently purchased a new site at Juniper and Bainbridge Streets, where 
it is intended to erect a building adapted for the carryiug on of mission work 
among colored people. 

In 1833, when General Jackson was a candidate for the Presidency, Dr. 
Wylie, in conjunction with others, took interest in the political issues of the 

clay (the American Covenanters np to that time having I'efrained from taking 
the oath of allegiance to the Constitution). This led to a discussion in the 
Synod of the Reformed Presbyterian Church, in regard to the recognition of 
the United States, by voting and holding office, finally resulting in a division 
of the congregation, those who were not in accord withdrawing, and the re- 
mainder, which was by far the larger part of the congregation, remaining with 
the pastor. 

This division of the cliureh was followed by a suit at law for the recovery 
of church jjroperty, the " First Church of Pittsburg '" being taken as a test 
case. A young and rising lawyer was engaged to defend us against the claim 
of our seceding brethren. At his request he was furnished with a small library 
of books bearing upon the history of the church and its doctrines. He made 
such good use of it that when he opened the ease for the defence, the judge re- 
marked, " I did not know that you were a Covenanter." " I did not know, 
your Honor," was his reply, " that there was such a body now in existence until 
I got my retaining fee. I am an Episcopalian." Pie won his case. 

That lawyer was Edwin M. Stanton, who, when he later became Secretary 
of War in President Lincoln's Cabinet, understood the difficulty about the oath 
of allegiance to the Constitution, which would have kept the Old Side Covenan- 
ters from serving in the army, although their sympathies were strongly with 
the government and against tlie slaveholders. Hence, ho devised for them a 
declaration of general loyalty to the government, so that they ^vere enabled to 
enter the army without swearing to support the Constitution, which they re- 
garded as an atheistic dociunent. 

In 1835 a number of the members in the congregation, in what was then 
called Eairmount, received an amicable dismission, and was organized as the 
Second Reformed Presbyterian Church. This organization enjoyed the ser- 
vices of the late Rev. Dr. S. W. Crawford, Rev. Samitel S. Stevenson and the 
Rev. William Sterrett, D.I)., the last of whom has recently celebrated his 
jubilee year of pastoral relations with his jaeople. 

In 1846 the increase of the congregation made it desirable that another 
church should be formed in what was then called the District of Kensington. 
In consequence, the Third Reformed Presbyterian Church was organized JtiIv 
Cth, lS4rS. A sejjaration in this congregation resulted in the formation of the 
Fifth Reformed Presbyterian Church. By a imion of this church with the 
Kensington Presbyterian Church the Union Tabernacle Church has been 
formed. A separation from the Second Church has formed the Fourth. And 
from the Third the Sixth. 

It has been said that there Avere twenty-four hundred members of the 
Presbyterian Churches of Philadelphia who had at one time belonged to this 
congregation, and that it was represented in a majority of its sessions. 

In 1835 the Rev. James R. Campbell, a member of the congregation, went 
to India as the first representative of the Reformed Presbyterian Church of 
the United States in that country. 

In 1843 the Rev. T. W. J. Wylie was ordained and installed to the min- 
istry, and ordained as assistant pastor to his father. 

Ill October, 1847, the jubilee of Dr. Samuel Brown Wylie's arrival 
to the city occurred. The congregation arranged to celebrate the event by 
suitable ceremonies. A large meeting was held December 1st, 1847. In con- 
nection with devotional exercises a purse containing $500.00 and a silver pitcher 
and salver were presented to the Kev. S. B. Wylie, as an expression of the ven- 
eration and respect of the people for their beloved pastor. 

In October, 1852, the Eev. Samuel Brown Wylie entered rest. Having 
continued as a pastor of that church for forty-six years, he was siicceeded by 
his son. Rev. T. W. J. Wylie. Thus, during the whole period of its separate 
history as a church of more than ninety-nine years, the organization has had but 
two pastors — Eev. Samuel B. Wylie, D.D., and Eev. T. W. J. Wylie, D.D., 
father and son; a remarkable pastorate, it being the only one of its kind 
that search has revealed. 

The elder Wylie was a man of wide learning, especially in the Oriental 
languages. He published a Hebrew grammar, as well as one on Greek. On 
one occasion our National Government received a letter written in the crabbed 
characters used by the Armenian nation. It made a round of the leading col- 
leges without finding anyone who could decijaher it, or even say in what lan- 
guage it was written, when it finally came to Dr. Wylie, ■who read it with ease. 

In his personal character he combined kindness with decision. Many stories 
are current of his wonderful generosity, especially to the people of his native 
land, and the invariable enthusiasm with Avhich his pupils in school and uni- 
versity speak of him show him to have been a man of extraordinary reach of 
personal influence for good. 

In consequence of the prosperity of the congregation it was considered 
desirable to erect a new church in another locality. This led to the erection of 
a church on the site now occuj)ied by the present building. The opening ser- 
vices were held April 3 0th, 1854. The pastor preached in the morning from 
1 Kings 8 : 57, " The Lord our God be with us as he was with our fathers. Let 
him not leave us nor forsake us." Eev. J. N. McLeod, D.D., of jSTew York, 
preached in the afternoon from Luke 12 : 32, " Fear not, little flock, for it is 
your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom." The Eev. Dr. Duff, the 
celebrated missionary from India, in the evening, preached from Psalm 95. 

The desire to hear the latter was so great that many of the afternoon con- 
gregation retained their seats after the close of the services, so as to be sure 
of a place in the evening. 

Long before the hour appointed for the services a vast crowd had gath- 
ered in front of the church, many of whom failed to gain admission. His ser- 
mon, which was afterwards i3ublished, was one of the most notable ever deliv- 
ered on such an occasion in our city. 

The building of the new ciiurch was due so largely to Mr. Stewart's efforts, 
and to the generous contributions of himself and his personal friends, that nat- 
urally he was interested in its speedy erection. Being chairman of the Build- 
ing Committee, he determined, if possible, to have the celebrated Dr. Duff 
preach at the dedication. He states that through his influence the contractors 
worked both night and day in order to have the building completed before April 
30th, 1854, which was a Sabbath. 

In this location the church reached its highest prosperity. The number 
of communicants has exceeded 800. Its contributions have in a single year 
amounted to $12,000. It has sent out more than sixty ministers and mission- 
aries, and has beeu the source of many religious gatherings, notably the great 
Presbyterian Reunion C\invention of 1867. 

The congregation has e\'er been active and earnest in the support of the 
government, and during the trying period between the years 1861 and 1865, 
that which Lecky has called the '" Heroic Age of America," sixty of its families 
were represented on the field of battle. 

The Christian Commission, which performed such noble work in those days 
of strife, was organized and continued through the efforts of its ruling elder, 
Hon. George H. Stewart. 

Dissensions arose in the congregation in connection with the proposed 
imion of the Presbyterian Churches. About three hundred withdrawing from 
the church claimed possession of the property. A lawsuit was the result, con- 
tinuing in various forms for nearly twenty years, and finally settlement by a 
compromise in 1879, our congregation giving to those who had withdrawn five 
thousand dollars to help erect a new church they were then building, whereby 
they relinquished all claim to our jDroperty. 

The rending away of part of the congregation, the severance from the 
Synod, made it a trying time not only for this congregation, but for other 
churches as well. Within two years after severing connection with the S^Tiod, 
the way Avas opened for it to form an organic union with tlie General Assembly 
of the Presbj'terian Church, and on September 7th, 1885, we came under the 
care and control of that body. 

Following this a change of name appeared suitable, xlccordingly, in per- 
l^etuation of the memory of the founder of the cluirch, the title " Wylie 
Memorial Presbyterian Church '" was assumed on June 26th, 1886. 

It Avas during the year 1890 that Dr. Wyhe visited Europe, and during his 
absence his place was acceptably filled by the Eev. Samuel T. Lowrie, D.D., and 
upon Dr. Wylie's return Dr. Lowrie was chosen associate pastor, a position he 
maintained with acce^Jtability until his resignation at the union of this church 
with that of the Chambers Church in May, 1897. 

The last public service of the Wylie Menu^rial Church was held on Sab- 
bath, the 16th of May, 1897. Conuuunion was dispensed by the beloved pastor, 
and many who attended were partictdarly impressed with the solemnity of the 
occasion. This service had always been conducted in the now almost obsolete 
manner of tables being spread in the long and side aisles of the church, cov- 
ered with snowy linen. Directly under the pulpit rested the communion ser- 
vice, the goblets filled and the bread ready. The congregation approached the 
tables singing Psabns, and when enough were seated to the capacity of the 
tables, the elders passed down collecting cards from the communicants upon 
which were printed appropriate texts, and written the name and address of the 

The church was demolished to make space for the new structure. The 
box taken from the old corner-stone is still preserved with its contents. 





Mistot^ of (Tbambers^M^Uc Cburcb 

OE, some time prior to tie merging of the Cliambers and the Wylie 
Churches, the matter of consolidation had been discussed bv the 
respective members of both bodies, with the result that it was 
deemed expedient to unite aud thereby insure the certainty of 
the maintenance of a strong active church in a locality which for 
so many years had witnessed the labors of the two churches. Ac- 
cordingly, representatives of both churches met to prepare the 
way for the acc(.)mplishment of the union. 

Articles of agreement were drawn, and after formal adop- 
tion and ratification by the congregations of the two churches, 
the same were executed on the 27th day of May, 1897. 

Under this agreement the name of the new church was to 
be " The Chambers- AVylie Memorial Presbyterian Church," in 
in memory of the former pastors of the two churches. Kev. Dr. 
Wylie was to retire from the active pastorate, and become pastor emeritus, and 
Rev. Dr. Hoyt was to remain the active pastor of the united church. The 
Chambers Church property at Broad and Sansom Streets was to be sold, and 
out of the proceeds the existing mortgage indebtedness of $60,000 was to be 
paid, and also $6,000 donated to the Eutledge Church at Eutledge, Pa., to 
liquidate a mortgage of that amount which encumbered their church property, 
and then there was to be set aside $200,000 as a perpetual endowment, the in- 
come of same to be applied to the general uses of the chiirch. "With the re- 
mainder a new church edifice was to be erected on the site of the Wylie Church. 
Commissioners from both churches were appointed to present the matter 
to Presbytery for ecclesiastical sanction, which body heartity ratified the union. 
The charter was presented to Court of Common Pleas, No. 4, of Philadel- 
phia, and legally approved by decree of the Court on June 21st, 1S97, by vii'- 
tue of which the two churches became merged and consolidated into one chiirch. 
Pre2)aratiou was immediately made for the combined worship of the con- 
gregation, and in a few weeks the Wylie congregation worshiped in the Cham- 
bers Church in conjunction with the members of the latter congregation. 

The Chambers Church building was sold, the purchase price being $412,- 
500, and immediately was commenced the erection of the new church building, 
the coutract for its construction being awarded to J. E. & A. L. Pennock. 

Upon the vacation of the Chambers Cluirch the congregation was tendered 
the use of the old Epiphany Church building at the northwest corner of Fif- 
teenth aud Chestnut Streets, by Mr. Johii Wanamaker, which offer was grate- 
fully accepted. This building was renovated and fitted \ip with pews and 
church furniture, and diu'ing the erection of the new building Avas the churcli 
home of the Chambers-Wylie Church, and it was vacated only when the present 
edifice was ready for occupancy.

Besctiption of the IFlew BuilbiriG 

HE buildiBg is located on the east side of Broad Street, laetween 

T Spruce and Pine Streets, extending through to Watts Street, in 
the rear. It is 76 feet in width, allowing sufficient sjDace on each 
side for passageways from Broad Street through to Watts 
Street. These passageways are controlled by wrought-iron 
gates, both at the front and the rear. The church is designed 
in the early English (jothic style, with pei'pendicular treatment, 
the exterior being modeled somewhat on the lines of Ripon 
Cathedral in Yorkshire, England. The restrictions imposed by 
the limitation of the site led to the adoption of a purely facade 
treatment on Broad Street with absolute symmetry of arrange- 
ment. Owing to the fact that high buildings may at any time 
form obstructions to the view on either or both sides, whatever 
architectural effect obtained must be considered entirely from 
Broad Street. On this account equal prominence has been given to the north 
and south corners. The facade consists of two comparatively low corner tow- 
ers, flanking a high gable, the latter forming the width of the nave. The main 
entrance consists of three large, richly ornamented arched doorways, two steps 
above the level of the sidewalk. There are also other entrances on the side 
passageways, two of which are near the front on either side leading to the Board 
and Sessions room in the basement, and two others farther back leading to the 
Sunday School in the rear of the building. The entire Broad Street front, in- 
cluding the four sides of the towers, is faced with Port Deposit granite, with 
Indiana limestone trimmings. 

The main entrance on the front leads into a wide vestibule extending the 
full width of the nave, between the two towers. This vestibule is paneled from 
floor to ceiling in quartered oak, with oak beam ceiling and mosaic floor. 

Two broad staircases leading to the church auditorium are located one in 
each of the towers at the ends of the vestibule. The building is two stories in 
height, the first or basement story being slightly belo\v the level of the ground. 
The basement consists of a large lecture room, 52 feet wide and 72 feet long, a 
Board room and Sessions room near the front, and a ladies' parlor, kitchen, 
store rooms, toilet rooms and boiler room in the rear. The lecture room has 
three distinct entrances, one from the large front vestibule, and one from each 
of the staircase halls on either side, which also lead to the Sunday School above. 
The church auditorium is elevated about twelve feet above the sidewalk 
level, and is located directly over the large basement lecture room. It is 
treated with a high clerestory, with nave and side aisles, thus- affording abund- 
ance of light and natural, Ventilation in case high buildings -should be erected 
on the adjoining properties, besides giving a thoroughl.y ehurchlike effect to the 
interior. The clerestory walls are supported on octagonal piers and moulded 

arches, all of Indiana limestone. The pulpit platform and choir gallery are 
at the eastern end, and are marked by a lofty, moulded stone arch, almost the 
entire width of the nave. The organ chambers are located on either side and 
above the choir gallery, the organ being divided into two parts, each connecting 
with the keyboard at the center of the choir gallery. In addition to the clere- 
story piers, arches, and pulpit arch, all the windows in the church are trimmed 
with Indiana limestone, the body of the walls being plastered and decorated in 
color. The entire roof is of oak with ornamented arched trusses over each of 
the clerestory piers. The windows are treated with jaerpendicular stone 
tracery, and filled with leaded glass in simple lines, but rich in color. The walls 
are decorated in a warm green tone, forming a rich contrast to the limestone 
trimmings and harmonizing with the colors of the glass. A high paneled wain- 
scoting carries around the entire auditorium, and extends on a somewhat higher 
level around the pulpit platform. The wainscoting, pews and pulpit furniture 
are all finished in quartered oak. The organ pipes, which fill four large arch- 
ways, are gilded, with simple lines of decoration in color. The seating capacity 
of the auditorium is about 700. 

The Sunday School is located at the rear of the church, and on a slightly 
lower level. It is reached from the exterior side passageways by means of two 
staircases, one on either side, leading to this floor. It consists of a large main 
room, with class-rooms on the north side and a large infant room on the south, 
with spacious galleries over these rooms to be used for additional class-rooms. 
The Sunday School library is located between the two entrances to the Sunday 
School, and also connects directly with the Sunday School platform. The en- 
tire ceiling of the Sunday School is of oak, and the walls are of jDlaster, tinted in 
a plain light buff color. A simple oak wainscoting also carries around this 
entire room. 

The biiilding is equipped with a complete system of steam heating and ar- 
tificial ventilation, and is also provided with both electric and gas lighting.

The Laurel Hill Cemetery 

S]tu&.ted on Ridge Ave., between Thirty-fourth and Thirty-sixth Sts. 

THE LAUREL HILL CEMETERY is the oldest suburban Cemetery in the United States, with the 
exception of Mt. Auburn, in Boston. Founded in 1835, it has long been famous among the places of 
interest in Philadelphia, for the natural beauty of its site and scenery (embelHshed by much skill and 
labor), the magnificence and variety of its monuments, and the names of the distinguished dead who 
lie buried within its walls. Occupying one of the most exquisite situations in the neighborhood of 
Philadelphia, on the high and wooded bank of the Schuylkill River (adjoining East and opposite West 
Fa'rmount Park), it is easily reached on foot as well as by steamboat, trolley car and carriage (via 
drives in the East Park), and steam cars (via Pennsylvania Railroad from Broad and Market Streets, to Ridge 
Avenue Station, a few squares from the Cemetery, and via Reading Railroad from depot 12th and Market Streets 
and 23rd and Chestnut Streets to station on Cemetery ground). It is peculiarly and perfectly protected from 
encroachments by its surroundings, having Ridge Avenue on the East, the river on the west, and the Park on 
the remaining sides. 

The price of lots range from 58'/^ cents to ;j;3.oo per square foot, according to location; and the sizes from 
eight feet by ten feet to any size desired, so that lots can be purchased from about $55.00 to almost any sum. 

The management wish to call the attention of visitors and lot holders to the fact that in the grounds of the 
Cemetery they have a large and well-stocked Greenhouse, in the charge of an experienced gardener, who can 
furnish Plants, Cut Flowers, Crosses, Wreaths, etc., at short notice, and at reasonable prices, and who can arrange 
to take the care of lots, and do desired decoration at a reasonable yearly charge. 


Office, No. 45 South Seventeenth Street. 

Lots can be obtained at the Cemetery or at Company's Office. The Laurel Hill Cemetery has 
with any other cemetery. Telephone No. r-36-73.

A Study in Costume ■ ■ By Amelia Mott Gummere 

An inquiry inio the Clothcj-Philosopfiv of thli unique icct. utilizing boiK the portrait 
of the Quaker ti! he see. himielf »nd the Quaker a. otheti tee hiin. in a pa.n. taking cn- 
tieavor to portray the Quaker as he really was. The world, the flesh, and cten oceasionall, 
(it must be admitted) the des-il. figure as origins for the Quakef"s idiosyncrasies of garb. 
Quaker and >.orldlj fashions ha.e been studied on parallel lines. 

A varied arrav of original sources in liicratote. of early records and other documents 
not easily acccssiblt;'. and of quaint garments and trappings handed dosvn from old Quaker 
families, has been laid under contribution in the preparation of this eolume. The liberal 
use of illustrations of the latter makes the work a seritabic museum of picturesque Quaker 
antiquities, yet every picture casts needed light on the argument.
